Creation Year: 1978
Summary: While towing a VDS fish at sea, ideally the towed body should be directly aft of the ship; however, the forces and their components acting on the towline cause VDS fish to veer toward port or starboard of the ship's wake. This memorandum analyzes the force that act on a faired towcable and demonstrates that kiting is a natural phenomenon.
